Chief U.S. District Judge John Gerrard sentenced Sabas Rodriguez-Cisneros on Tuesday.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, Rodriguez-Cisneros was arrested after a package sent to his girlfriend in Lincoln in March 2018 was intercepted by U.S. Customs and Border Control in Cincinnati. Customs agents found 400 grams of meth and 197 fentanyl tablets inside the package.
